You are on the French side and thus prepare to adapt a little. Bring converter, dictionary if needed and patience. The setting is old, colonial and rooms/suites updated nicely. Well equipped and good mix of old (wood) and new (bathrooms). I would not go as far as the brochure indicates as "one of the best in the Caribbean". It certainly... More

To begin with, this is a very nice Hotel: quite old-fashioned, almost "quaint" rooms but very spacious. Food is terrific: 3-course Table D'Hote menu for about $33 is highly recommended. Staff were great: very friendly and helpful. BUT A WORD OF ADVICE: when you settle your account, do so in Euros, not US Dollars. They present the bill to you... More

We loved our stay, first time in St Martin NOT on a cruise excursion. The property is situated in a wonderful area, very close to Orient Beach (free chairs), Many restaurants within walking distance, and one on site. Car rental office right in lobby so very handy. Breakfast was simple but filling, and no different than what we would have... More

I would have given La Plantation 5.0 but for a few shortcomings - its really 4.5/5.0 The villa (No 902) was on the upper level - spacious and roomy - had everything we needed although a sofa and comfy chair would have been appreciated. The little orange/brown and white kitten came to see us every day and it was so... More

Our first time in St. Martin, did plenty of research and chose La Plantation based on location and amenities. The hotel (cluster of villas/cottages) has lush grounds and is surrounded by other similar-looking properties, which makes for some very pretty scenery and a nice island feel. We had an upper level room and it was well worth it. The terrace... More

My husband and I stayed at La Plantation for 5 days/4 nights and would sadly, not recommend this hotel. We are both very seasoned travelers, my husband having backpacked around the world and would not stay here again. I cannot see the value of this hotel, as we paid over $180/night. Cons: • Overall, the property is FAR from the... More

We have stayed here before, but or for 8 or 9 years. It is bigger now, but still very nice. The hotel has 53 rooms spread out on 3 parallel rows on a hillside overlooking Oriente Bay. the rooms are generally in 3 room modules, each bone or two with its own driveway. the three rooms are a larger central...

I truly enjoyed my stay at La Plantation last week, largely due to the amazing and friendly staff that went out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable as possible under the circumstances (I was traveling alone with a fractured foot). The front desk staff took excellent care of me by either personally picking me up in a... More

La Plantation is a good mid-level property in an excellent location. We were treated well, could walk to the beach and restaurants, and had access to the bus to travel to Grand Case, Marigot and beaches. I would stay here again!

Everyone here goes out of their way to make sure that you're content. If you need something just ask. We had a one bedroom and the furniture is simple yet comfortable and the patio is large with ample deck seating and chaises. The well kept grounds are lovely with ample plantings of flowering shrubs and Palm trees. The pool is... More
